      I never knew we had an IRC channel! Our New York group -- which was probably the most active grouplet -- never used it.

      Of course, there is absolutely nothing preventing you from embarking on the type of software improvement we were aiming for in the Phalanx project.

      In the past few years, what I have done myself and have recommended others do as well is to identify CPAN distributions that look like they're not being actively maintained, c

      • Thanks for the quick answer. :) Well, there's two problems for me here. For one I live out in the boondocks, with the nearest PM group being Berlin, a full 300km away from me.

          Well, if the Corehackers Project actually gets off the ground, that will fit the bill.

          But note that I learned about both the Phalanx Projec
